behind the plan, said yesterday. >> look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. and we've got to understand that. second of all, we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows in an illegal status. >> mccain is talking, what some republicans call the 27% problem. obama had strong support from latinos, 71% to romney's 27%. and romney's showing is part of a bigger trend. republican candidates have steadily been losing latino support. 27% was down from mccain's 31%, which was down from george bush's 41%. considering all that, what is probably the most interesting thing about today's announcement was how much it looks like earlier efforts to end immigration reform. earlier efforts that were hardly bipartisan with the main sticking point being the a word, amnesty. >> i have never will and never have supported efforts for blanket immigration amnesty. >> i don't support amnesty. i don't support special benefits. >> essentially, granding amnesty to

democracy, sometimes you win elections, sometimes you lose elections. i work very hard, but i lost. and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state. and i said yes. and why did he ask me and why did i say yes? because we both love our country. >> it is incredible when you think about the fierce political rivalry that once existed between these two. now two opinions from two smart reporters on whether or not she will make a bid for the presidency. but first kate bolduan takes a look back at how battles evolved into this partnership. >> reporter: barack obama and hillary clinton have faced questions together before. here in a 2008 presidential debate with cnn's wolf blitzer. >> i don't want to just end the war, but i want to end the mind-set that got us in the war in the first place. that's the kind of leadership i intend to provide as president of the united states. >> and of course -- >> senator clinton, that's a clear swipe at you. >> really? >> reporter: back then it was a very different relationship, in the midst of an already bitter rivalry. >> while i was working on thos

mcconnell made about his top job being to make sure that the president wasn't re-elected? >> well, i think part of it is. you could look at it that way. i'm sure if you asked the president he would say he believes these things. i'm actually told after his inaugural address, his former chief of staff, now chicago mayor, rahm emanuel asked him where did that come from and why did you decide to give that speech, again-w all those points we've talked about. and i'm told the president looked at him and said i just decided to say some things i really believe in. he's a second-term president. he doesn't have to run for re-election. we can talk about these policies. you know, the president didn't do these things. he didn't do women in combat. he didn't lift a finger on climate change. he didn't push hard on immigration. he didn't do gun control in his first term. so he's a second-term president who doesn't have to face the voters and these are things he wants to bring front and center. how much will he follow up? we will see. but they do believe in the white house, anderson, that pick up a d

democrats from the red states up for re-election next year, and they really feel that this is something they don't want to touch with a ten-foot pole. more broadly, there are about a dozen conservative democrats or at least democrats from conservative states who also just are highly skeptical of the idea of supporting this. and if you look at what the nra said today, it gives you an example of why. i'll read you part of the statement, anderson. they said the american people know gun bans do not work and we're confident congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong-headed approach. now, anderson, of all of the proposals she announced earlier this month, it seems that background checks, some form of them, have the best chance of passing, but even people who support gun control said that's an uphill climb. one person who supports it explained the political dynamite saying democrats don't do well in gun fights. >> interesting. >> anderson. >> dana, thank you very much. >>> this next story is no less remarkable. a terrible tragedy. a family murdered in albuquerque, new mexico, but it's also

brutal 2012 election cycle. it's an opportunity to kind of reflect on american history and create a sense of unity. the most raccus was andrew jackson. when he got to the white house they were serving cider and people trashed the place. he slipped out the back of the executive mansion as it was called then and fled to alexandria and went to a tavern. he's tapped to be president. he took a barge to new york city and is sworn in. it's wrought with tradition. this is a time for the people to be glad that democracy works. the whole world is watching now. >> the longest inaugural was william henry harrison. >> he gave this long winded speech and got will. it was freezing weather. he died only a month later from his own inaugural. you don't want to be ranked below william henry harrison. >> what are you looking for tomorrow? >> most important is to have some kind of healing message. this is not a state of the union address. this is the president carefully reading lincoln's second inaugural, the poetry and language of it. i do think that barack obama, since the first one was historic for h

is to defeat the republicans in the midterm election, to just run on politics, tactically maneuver, defeat republicans, don't worry about the nation, and do what he wants to do in the final two years? >> i am for striking deals, if you watch that movie, lincoln, you're for striking deals -- i'm for cutting deals, but i'm not just for saying everybody should come together because here i am. >> but last night -- >> when you say be ruthless, if a republican, if a tea party member said be ruthless people would be screaming at you. >> what i think he should do -- >> anderson says -- >> well, i wasn't quoting, i was -- >> i'm sure i did use that word. that means it's not just saying come let's reason together. give them something, and then take something. do the grimy realistic -- sometimes unpleasant work of running the country. >> and this is the magic that the movie "lincoln" illustrated. the passage of the 13th amendment happened in a far more polarized congress than the current congress we have. if they can do anything -- president obama is not going to have a major legacy piece in
